Rb81ii's or rp600m? And why?

Recommended Posts

Looking at buying a used but very nice pair of Klipsch RB81ii's or a new pair of Klipsch RP600m. Would eventually be surrounds once basement is finished but will be a 2 channel setup for now. Which one and why. Also the price is almost identical on both. Thanks as always.

If just for surrounds with your RF-7 system, then I say the RB-81IIs.  The 81IIs can definitely hold their own with stereo music.

Yeah it will go with the RF7III'S and RC64III and a pair of RS62ii's and the pb13ultra. I can get the rb81ii's for about $50 or $60 less than the rp600m's at their very best price. Would not get a ton of use as a 2 channel setup but occasional use until the theater room is finished.

The RB-81 II's are awesome speakers. You can still get them new, on Amazon for $279/each.

 

We have a pair of them. The 81's were in a two channel stereo setup for a short time, and they were nothing less than stunning. Now they soldier on as the L&R side surrounds in my theater.

 

We also have a pair of RP-160M's as the rear ambience speakers.

 

The front L&R are the world renowned RF-7 III's.

 

Remember...when it comes to speakers, bigger really is better.
